Abstract

We report the case of a four years old child with fever, adenopathies, pharyngitis and scarlet micropapular exanthema. He was treated with amoxicillin/clavulanic acid and he had a favourable outcome. Staphylococcus aureus was isolated from his throat. Two weeks later he presented exfoliation. It seems to be an abortive form of Staphylococcal Scalded Skin Syndrome.
